Someone’s taking out drug lords left and right in Dallas. But this can only mean there’s a bigger threat out there.
The unexpected killing of Dallas drug king-pin Ricardo Salazar sets everyone on edge. The Dallas Police dread the ensuing gang war but detectives Rob Soliz and Frank Pierce were on the scene at the time of the shooting. They both saw a mysterious red-haired woman enter Ricardo’s just moment before, but she was never seen leaving. Instead, all they found inside the house was a dead man and a voodoo doll at his feet.
Rob and Frank search for the red-head. She is the key to unraveling the crime. But finding her only presents more questions than answers. As the gang war heats up, the body count rises, and innocent citizens are caught in the crossfire. Now, Rob and Frank may be Dallas’s only hope, but how do you fight something that only exists in myth?

Wow, there is a lot going on in this novel. It is packed full of action, murder but at the same time, we get to see the softer side of Rob and Frank through glimpses of their love lives. Loved it!
Frank and Rob I love. Having two male protagonists is something we don’t get much of in detective series’ set in the UK. There is only usually ever one lead character and then their team members in the background. There is certainly enough room for these two wonderful men.
It’s hard to say to much about the story as I don’t want to give anything away, but I am all for strong women roles in books. I like how the author doesn’t make the female characters feeble and weak like we see in so many novels. The women characters in this novel, for me, bumped this into a five star read. They seriously added to my enjoyment of it.
City Of Fear is a dark and mind blowing read that had me racing through the pages. It was quite a sombre read in parts as it will have you fighting with your conscience. Things arn’t black and white and will give you food for thought. I had very mixed emotions with the ending, you will need to read it yourself to find out why. Even though it was the right ending, I couldn’t help but wish that it could have ended differently. A gripping, compelling read that has a heart.
